@NikonAustralia photographer @raycollinsphoto centres his photography around the different moods of the sea. According to him, light is the main influence in any image. The way for one to differentiate one photographer from another is by light manipulation. “Light is what drives me to get out of bed in the dark each morning because I know different light will yield different images, and that in itself is limitless.” Share your spectacular #wave shots with us by tagging #NikonAsia.

Photography will never be the same for @nikon_taiwan photographer @crazydean0420. Having discovered the benefits of a larger mount diameter on the new mirrorless camera, Dean has noticed that light is more evenly distributed across the frame, resulting in edge-to-edge clarity and improved image quality. “The lenses [also] deliver minimal distortion while reducing chromatic aberration and vignetting.” Whether it’s the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S or the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S, the “wide open” aperture gives Dean the excellent image quality he desires. In his own words, “this redefines everything I thought possible with large apertures.” Photographed with the #Nikon #Z7 and the #NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S.

Silence is a virtue. From wildlife and weddings, to corporate event photography, the ability to turn on the silent photography feature of a DSLR, like the #Nikon #D850, can assist in capturing the right moment, without attracting your subject’s attention. Many DSLRs carry a quiet mode function, however, silent photography – which relies on an electronic shutter to capture images – takes everything up a notch with its mirrorless movement, creating a virtually silent image-capture at a high resolution and continuous speed.
